Lot Essay

The Place Vendôme column, inspired by the column of Trajan in the Roman Forum, was constructed from the bronze of 1,250 Russian and Austrian cannon captured after the Battle of Austerlitz in 1805. The present model is surmounted by the figure of Napoleon with bicorn hat, which replaced the previous model of Napoleon as a Roman Emperor, during the Restauration.
